Kerneur wins kitesurf slalom in Fuerteventura


Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands provided the ideal weather conditions for the Kitesurf World Cup this week.

The third and final day saw competitors battle it out in the slalom category – the third of seven stops in the discipline this year.

With over 40 knots of wind fans and surfers alike were in for a real treat.

Thrilling battles for position and spectacular overtaking maneuvers were the flavours of the day.

Notably between Frenchman Julien Kerneur and South African Oswald Smith who pushed each other all the way.

In the end Kerneur came out on top to boost his chances of overall world cup glory – he is second in the general standings behind American Bryan Lake.

The next slalom stop is in Istanbul starting August 21.
